The BIG MOVE for LaDIFF!
Where are we going?
1011 Commerce Rd in Manchester, one of Richmond’s oldest neighborhoods and 1.6 miles from our current store.
Will the store be the same size?
Our new store will be physically smaller. The main showroom will be about one-quarter the size of current LaDiff, with an attached outdoor furniture showroom coming later. There is a 10,000 square foot attached warehouse so our entire staff will be on site.
Is there parking?
You betcha! There is ample parking right by the store (no need to cross a street!).
What else is there?
The store is on a 5-acre lot which also includes an 8000 square foot out building that was a former cross-docking depot for semis. We plan to renovate that space for some exciting use TBD.
When are you moving?
Our plan is ‘spring 2022’ – depending on renovation permit approvals and construction times. As you can see from these ‘before’ photos, we have quite a lot of updating to do to make it a ‘LaDiff’ home. We will keep you posted!
There is so much growth in this old, very historic part of our city, and we want to be part of it. We wanted to stay in the city, with an attached warehouse, and the extra greenspace of this property is an added bonus!
A FANTASTIC view of the Richmond skyline. We can’t wait for you to see it in person!
Originally known by its native name of Manastoh, then renamed Rocky Ridge by the English, what is now Manchester was originally part of Henrico County (on the south shore, across from Henricus). In 1769, it was incorporated as the town of Manchester in Chesterfield County, and served as the county seat from 1870 to 1876. Manchester was an independent city from 1876 until 1910 when it was annexed into the city of Richmond. (As a commonwealth, Virginia cities are independent government agencies, not part of the county or counties that surround them.)
